It's said that man is made in God's own image
But in your case this isn't true
You're half of your father, half of your mother
And entirely, perfectly you
And when I look into your innocent face
I no longer wonder how I got to this place
My heart's filled with the love of two, boy,
My heart's filled with enough love for two.
Every year when this day comes
I worry about what I will say
When you'll start to ask me questions, like
What happened? Why didn't dad stay?
And when I think of all the disgrace,
The sorrow, the pain and the heartache -
Well, I cried enough for two, boy,
Enough for me and you.
I'm sorry I couldn't start you
With the life that you deserve
But every day I'm grateful
That you chose to come to Earth
And here you are, snuggled into my embrace
As you smile while you dream about cowboys in space,
It's enough with just me and you, boy,
All I need is you.
What would you like to say to your child/ren on this fine Father's Day?
